CS3 Icon Upgrade by InterestingJohn CS3 Icon Upgrade by InterestingJohn
Like many, I wasn't terribly happy with Adobe's "minimalistic" icon style for CS3, but I did like their color scheme, I had some of my own ideas, and after looking at what's already been created by other people, I built my own select set from scratch using what I consider the best parts from each.

The set includes:
256x256 PNG's for use in dock programs
ICNS Files for Mac users
3 size, 3 color level ICO files for Windows users

I welcome all comments, let me know what you think. If there's any icon I've omitted, let me know and I'll see what I can do to add it. Enjoy.

Nice one, I just spent the afternon reinstalling all my icons to RocketDock and went through about 6 different icons just for Photoshop & Illustrator. Like you I wasn't too keen on the minimalist approach Adobe went for but I think you nailed it with these!!

Great! One of the few approaches that tries to unite both the old and the new. Neat and clean, I really like them

These are such an improvement. I was really disappointed (well, about as disappointed as I can get by dock icons) with the CS3 versions. :D

Well, I finally found enough reference material to put together some Premiere and After Effect icons, I'm including some concepts for v.2 of these icons...

Photoshop
After Effects
Premiere

I'd appreciate some feedback, better? worse? don't care?... Thanks!

Hello! I really appreciated this icon set, and took the liberty of making an icon out of this AE prototype as well, I hope you don't mind, but I really really like them and wanted a matching AE icon real bad!
Here it is: [link]
Thanks for the great set!

I think I'm going to revamp (read: improve the design and add a few details) these icons pretty soon as well as add After Effects and Premiere... so if anyone knows where I can find hi-res versions of the symbols (feather, flower, butterfly, etc...) please let me know. Thanks!
